EXISTING MORTGAGE WITH CRESCENT: HAVING FINANCIAL DIFFICULTY?
Mortgage Financial Hardship Assistance
Crescent Credit Union understands that from time to time our members may experience financial hardship. If you are experiencing a financial hardship and are finding it difficult to make your mortgage or home equity loan payment in a timely manner, Crescent may be able to help. It's important to consider all available options before risking possible foreclosure.
As your mortgage loan servicer, Crescent will work with you in an effort to make your payment affordable. If you believe you are experiencing a qualified financial hardship, please contact the Mortgage Collections Department at 1-800-894-4445 extension 6334.
Beware of Foreclosure Rescue Scams. Help is free!
There is never a fee to get assistance or information about any mortgage financial hardship program. If you want to work with a third-party organization, make sure it is a HUD-approved housing counselor. For a HUD-approved counselor, call 1-888-995-HOPE or visit the HUD website.
Beware of any person or organization that asks you to pay a fee in exchange for housing counseling services or modification of a delinquent loan.
Beware of anyone who says they can “save” your home if you sign or transfer over the deed to your house. Do not sign over the deed to your property to any organization or individual unless you are working directly with your mortgage servicer.
Never make your mortgage payments to anyone other than your mortgage servicer without their approval.
Is your mortgage a Fannie Mae loan?
To find out if your mortgage is owned by Fannie Mae, you can go to the Fannie Mae Loan Lookup site. This site enables you to quickly determine if Fannie owns your loan. This site is provided only as a convenience; you should check with Crescent to confirm if your loan is owned by Fannie Mae.
If you do have a Fannie Mae mortgage and you wish to file a dispute with Crescent regarding the process or decision on your financial hardship application, please submit a written request to: Collections Manager, Crescent Credit Union, P.O. Box 4290, Brockton, MA 02303 or call 1-800-894-4445 ext. 6334.
